BRUNSWICK — The Theater Project, 14 School St., continues to celebrate the holiday season.

‘Tis the season for Dylan Thomas’ lyrical holiday memory, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” and this lovely story is the centerpiece of Al Miller’s “Wales and Tales” on stage at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19. This show has become a yearly tradition for so many; as Miller says, “It’s like an old shoe you thought you’d thrown out.” There will also be a Cajun take on the old favorite, “The Night Before Christmas,” as well as a Hanukkah story, and a tale from “Scandinavia: A Quest for Christmas.”

If there are enough willing volunteers, Miller will again lay down his life to tell the story of “The Lost Mitten,” where he will be counting on his storytelling helpers to restore him to a healthy vertical stance. All are welcome to attend a reception after the show. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, $10 for children (12 and under; kids under 2 are free as long as they sit on a patron’s lap); top level seating in the theater is always Pay-What-You-Want.

The Theater Project is pleased to host The Moving Company Dance Troupe where they will be performing “Offering: Works in Progress” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20. This informal presentation — some works are more finished, some are less — is an opportunity for the dancers to share their current work with family and friends this holiday season.

The show features choreographed and improvised works, as well as original choreography from individual troupe members, and a very special appearance by Collabo-Tap, a collaborative tap group featuring Moco teacher Liz Rancourt-Smith. General admission tickets are $5 and are available at the door.

Rounding out the holiday offerings is another beloved Theater Project tradition, “Storytelling With Al” at 11 a.m. on Christmas Eve. Come join Al Miller, Phyllis Fuchs and musician Brad Terry for an assortment of stories, music and festive good cheer. In lieu of admission, patrons are asked to consider making a donation to The Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.
